Konica Minolta announces exclusive new in line product with Plockmatic

Finishing Solutions

Konica Minolta and the Plockmatic Group have extended their partnership to launch the powerful and versatile SD-435/450 bookletmakers. This brings a cost efficient solution for heavy production finishing to low and mid sized Centralised Reprographic Departments (CRD) and commercial print environments.

Plockmatic Group’s in line platform introduces architecture that enables new features for the first time in the low to mid volume market segments across Konica Minolta’s AccurioPress mono and colour production machines. The in line versions of the SD-435/450 will be exclusively sold by Konica Minolta throughout 2022.

The new system architecture enables customers to produce high quality booklets from A6 to A4 landscape and has all the key processes needed to produce corner and edge staple, folding, spine forming and full bleed trimming, all combined in one single, easy to use system.

Other options include:

RCT 3.0 Rotate Crease Trimmer that enables professional looking, full bleed trimmed and creased booklets now on sheets up to 620mm long, which can also be fitted with active anti-static bars. Konica Minolta’s TU-510 innovative four-edge trimmer and creaser can be used as an alternative to the RCT module.

A finishing module FM-400 that includes a new design, face trimmer and square folding mechanism in a single unit. It is based on the successful trimmer and book fold modules from SD-500/350.

High capacity BST4000 book stacker for more production oriented sites allowing long unattended runs. It can be configured straight after the SD-435/450 or at a 90-degree angle.

Since the first partnership agreement between the two companies was first unveiled in 2016, Konica Minolta has successfully launched the Plockmatic SD-500, Plockmatic PowerSquare 160 and Powersquare 224 bookletmakers with the Plockmatic SD-435/450 Series, this means that all finishing needs of CSRDs and commercial printers are now being met – and Konica Minolta’s finishing portfolio is completed.

‘The Plockmatic SD-435/450 Series sets new standards and will meet the exacting demands of customers, which can shift with functionality and the range of applications required, and depends on the specific production environment,’ said Malcolm Smith, category manager of production and industrial print at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd. ‘These finishing systems deliver real value to any CRD or commercial printing environment. Features such as long sheet capability, corner and edge stapling, square folding and full bleed trim are critical features for success, especially in the colour production marketplace. The capability to produce A4 landscape booklets is becoming an increasingly important expectation for customers as they continue to rethink the possibilities.’

Johan Mikaelsson, Plockmatic vice president business unit in line and group technical support said: ‘We are delighted to be extending our successful partnership with Konica Minolta with an exclusive agreement that benefits both companies. Customers recognise that the finishing of any document has never been more important. The SD-435/450 Series use the latest patented Plockmatic technologies to deliver top quality output in a wide range of print applications that can be tailormade for customers and will enable them to grow business in their territories.’
